Preparing for a holiday never used to be this stressful I am sure. What with flight cancellations and ridiculous queues at the airports on all the news reports it feels very hard to get excited about going away. Will three hours be long enough to get through check in and security? Is 4am early enough to book the taxi to pick us up? Wasn't it lovely when all you had to wonder about was 'am I taking enough swimsuits?'
I guess I always have my crochet to occupy my mind in the lead up to going away - and the blanket is definitely coming together now. I just have 2 more coloured 'postcard' block and a 'wish you were here' one left to do. I have even joined the two completed end blocks to the middle section
I've even gone 'rogue' with my appliqué decorations and made a whale and a sailing boat instead of the beach hut that the pattern suggests
in other news - guess who had a birthday this weekend?
Eleven years old! This is her new favourite place to lay in the garden, she's completely flattened the flowers down and I can't believe it's comfortable for her but maybe it's slightly shaded there and cool to lay in when it's sunny?
